A 51-year-old man came to our department of dermatology complaining of recurrent purpuric events (RPE) in various organs (nasal mucosa, intestine, articular joints) 1 year after cholecystectomy. The first reported manifestations of RPE were epistaxis and a large asymptomatic bruise on the right thigh, followed by other episodes, which occurred at irregular intervals and were apparently unrelated to drug consumption. The bruises frequently occurred first on the arms and forearms then on the rest…

Cases underline the importance of partner notification in cases of RS and the examination of RS patient’s partner allowed to confirm the infectious aetiology of the syndrome and also to diagnose and to treat the PID in his wife.

Psychogenic Purpura (Gardner-Diamond Syndrome).

An overview of psychogenic purpura is provided and the case of a 15-year-old girl is presented, most commonly seen in women, but isolated cases have been reported in adolescents and in males.

Autoerythrocyte sensitization(Gardner–Diamond) syndrome

Autoerythrocyte sensitization (Gardner–Diamond) syndrome should be considered in the differential diagnosis of purpura, especially in patients with psychiatric problems.

Diamond‐Gardner Syndrome: A Case Report

The history, histology, and positive "skintest,” carried out by subcutaneously injecting autologous erythrocytes obtained from heparinized blood, confirmed the suspected diagnosis of Diamond‐Gardner syndrome.

Bleeding manifestations apparently unrelated to coagulation or other organic disorders: A tentative classification and diagnostic clues

The features of bleeding conditions apparently not associated with vascular, platelet, or clotting dysfunctions are studied, including Münchausen syndrome factitious or fictitious, suicidal or homicidal bleeding, bleeding due to self-punishment, stigmatization, the battered child syndrome, and psychogenic bleeding.

Four patients with purpura who manifested an unusual response to bruising were studied, and special studies utilizing skin testing procedures indicated an abnormal tissue response of sensitivity to red blood cells.

SUMMARY.— Autoerythrocyte sensitization syndrome (painful bruising syndrome) is a chronic purpuric cutaneous disease of women, characterized by localized painful inflammatory swellings which in a few

Cutaneous fibrinolytic potential, tPA dependent, is reduced in Behçet's disease

The studies showed that the plasma fibrinolytic activity was reduced in the patients with Behçet's disease and there was impaired cutaneous fibrinelytic potential, tPA dependent, in those patients with venous and arterial thromboses.
